It's as easel as 1-2-3!

I decided to make an easel card for fun since my brain is fried from the caffeine rush I've been on (and still am on instead of smoking due to my headaches)! Just looking at them I was intimidated...until I found the tutorial and tried it! OMG they're so easy and so much fun to make! It's a perfect way to display your card! I was looking around and found that coincidentally Miss Jessica the Whimsical Butterfly was having an easel challenge...actually...Randi posted the challenge...but it's still from the Whimsical Wednesdays challenge blog! :D Ok...I'm just confusing myself or I'm on too much caffeine! Everything is just rushing by and going slow at the same time...lol. I think I'll lay down after this post! Yeah...I think I might! :S

I used Marina Neira's Snowball Fight! These characters are too cute and funny and they're pretty fun to color in! Check them out at The Greeting Farm! There are digi and rubber form!

Ok now...off to lay down and let the caffeine fade from my system...we have Lizzie's parent conference tomorrow morning...so I need to be function-able...lol.

Thanks for stopping by and putting up with this buffoon! :S *hides face in shame*

OMG, Gabby your work amazes me every time. Even with a headache your cards are AWESOME!

P.S. Hell Ya, I'm ready for New Moon. I think I got the fever. I'm calling out of work on Friday! LOL!

Hey, are you offering me a onesie? I don't have any babies because two kids are too much for me but I do have naked bears around my house.
